Is there ever an end to stupidity? Arrest warrants are serious, and most people if wanted, usually stay off the radar. But not this ballsy, stupid guy.
Michael Shane Hagger, visited Facebook to tell police he liked his mug shot. A 34-year-old New Zealand resident, he has been on the run from the police since May to avoid three warrants for shoplifting and not showing up in Taupo District Court, Stuff reported.
The Tauhara Paetiki Neighbourhood Policing Team posted a photo of Hagger on Facebook, asking people to help find the wanted man. Hagger saw the post, “liked” it, and responded with “hoo rah.”
“If Mr Hagger was hoping to elude police he clearly underestimated the power of social media,” Jeurissen told Stuff.
“By attempting to taunt police he has simply drawn national attention to himself and increased our chances of finding him. He would be wise to heed the initial response to his Facebook message and make contact with us to get the outstanding matters resolved.”
